ABSTRACT
The utilization of 3,714 bp from four gene regions (nrDNA,
petN-psbM, trnD-trnT, trnS-trnG) was sufficient to accurately identify an
unknown juniper taxon from the Elburz Mtns., Iran as Juniperus
polycarpos var. polycarpos, not J. excelsa. The combined NJ tree (3,714
bp) showed J. polycarpos var. turcomanica to be more closely related to
J. excelsa, than to J. p. var. polycarpos. Phytologia 93(2): 316-321
(December 1, 2011).
KEY WORDS: Juniperus polycarpos var. polycarpos, J. p. var.
seravschanica, J. p. var. turcomanica, J. excelsa, Cupressaceae, Iran,
